It’s tax day! Let’s celebrate the end of tax season with a refreshing cocktail!
Did you know there’s an actual drink named after this day? Yes, the income tax cocktail exists. It’s gin based and it sounds very comforting. I’ll have to make that one next year…
Today, we’re drinking this blackberry bourbon smash.
Making cocktails for the blog is always a lot of fun…because it involves day drinking. I bought this tabletop artificial light unit last year in hopes to take photos whenever I want (meaning after 5pm), however it’s proving to be difficult. I’m still way too in love with natural light photography. Hence, day drinking will have to continue for a little longer.
Simple cocktails that don’t require much prep are the best. While I used blackberries, you can substitute just about any fruit you’re in love with at the moment: blueberries, kiwi, strawberries, dragon fruit. If you don’t like bourbon… we might have a tough time being friends. However, if you keep it a secret, you can totally substitute rum, vodka or gin.
